A sociological review
This project looks into modern sociological and ethnographic research conducted by Moroccan and foreign scholars on Moroccan women’s condition. In so doing, I look at historical moments that led to the development of emancipatory thinking, which serves the cause of women’s liberation. These include the years immediately preceding and following Morocco’s emergence as independent from France, the Years of Lead, and the recent so-called reform of the Moudawana. The focus is directed towards the socio-cultural change and how the latter is lined up with these historical junctures. Accordingly, building upon a cultural, feminist approach, the purpose is to dwell on this change and produce an evaluation of Moroccan women’s evolutionary political and economic situation. Hence, the project will review sociological studies that tackled the socio-politico-economic status of Moroccan women throughout the years.
